The Maritine & Coastguard Agency is responsible throughout the UK, for implementing the Government’s maritime safety policy.
That includes co-ordinating search and rescue at sea through Her Majesty’s Coastguard, and checking that ships meet UK and international safety rules. We work to prevent the loss of lives at the coast and at sea, to ensure that ships are safe, and to prevent coastal pollution Safer Lives, Safer Ships, Cleaner Seas.
We are putting increasing effort into prevention work and a measure of our success is when accidents do not happen, or where we intervene to minimise their impact.
